#IamPublicArt at the Amphitheater - September 24th
The Carnegie Center for Art and History in New Albany, Indiana is excited to announce our annual New Albany Public Art Project event, but with a twist for 2016 (and beyond): this year’s artwork installations will be on display for one night only at the New Albany Riverfront Amphitheater, as part of a “pop up” public art event that we are calling #IamPublicArt. On Saturday, September 24, 2016 from 6:00 PM until midnight (rain date Sunday, September 25).
#IamPublicArt will feature pop up art installations created by groups of art students from the University of Louisville, Indiana University Southeast, and Kentucky College of Art + Design. The public can join in the art making at art activity stations set up at each installation site, and by participating in a community art project intended for display beyond the evening of #IamPublicArt.
Attendees of all ages can enjoy a free Make Your Own Giant Bubble Wand workshop, from 6:00-8:00 PM. Carnegie Center staff will help participants create and personalize their own giant bubble wands, using bamboo, cotton rope, and art supplies for decoration. Once everyone who wants to create a bubble wand has had the chance to do so, staff will provide gallons of bubble mix to start a bubble party! Revelers can take their wands home with them, along with a recipe for bubble mix.
From 6:00 PM to midnight, #IamPublicArt will present a series of free performances at the Riverfront Amphitheater. Curated by Louisville artist and renaissance man Jecorey Arthur, a.k.a. 1200, this slate of performers from Louisville and Southern Indiana includes offerings ranging from live music (including a drum line!) to dance to spoken word. Food and drink vendors will be available to help attendees enjoy everything #IamPublicArt has to offer, on into the night.
